AP Testing

Dear Riverside Parents,

This is just a reminder that the deadline for registering for an AP test is approaching on November 5, 2021. If your student is currently enrolled in an AP Course and is planning on taking the corresponding AP Exam, please have him/her register for the test through their College Board account at https://myap.collegeboard.org/login. Registration has 2 parts: join ap class section and select Yes. Any exams that are registered for after November 5 may be subject to a $40 late fee.


The ONLY way an AP exam will be ordered for a student is if they have joined their AP class section(s) online AND selected Yes to take the exam. Students must choose Yes or No by November 5. After that, all "Undecided" registrations will be changed to No.

Also, as you may recall, LCPS has agreed to pay for the first 4 AP exams that your student takes, effective this school year. To clarify, if your student is taking 4 AP exams or less this school year, and registers before November 5, you do not need to pay anything.


If your student is planning on taking more than 4 AP exams this year, your child will need to pay $87 per test, for the number of exams over 4 that your child is taking. For example, if your student will be taking 6 AP exams, you will need to pay $174 ($87 x 2 tests).

Please note that you do not need to pay for the exams by Nov. 5, your child only needs to register for the exams. Registration and payment are two different processes. If you are certain that your student will be taking (and is registered for) more than 4 exams and you would like to make a payment at this time, please use Riverside's online payment portal. If your child attends Academies of Loudoun, and will be taking an exam there, you will need to make payment through the Academies of Loudoun payment portal. If you are unsure if your student will be attending Academies of Loudoun on a specific date, please check the testing schedule found here.


If you have questions about the number of tests your child may be registered for, please reach out to Michi Bryant, the School Test Coordinator at michi.bryant@lcps.org. Please know that once the Exam Registration window closes, you will be contacted if you need to pay for an exam or pay any applicable late fees for a late test registration.

Do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
